The Halo Championship Series will have its final major of the year in Orlando from September 23 to 25. The tournament will have a prize pool of $250,000, but the teams participating aren’t the only parties that can win big.
The Halo Championship Series Orlando title odds promise big rewards for bettors with OpTic (+125) and Cloud9 (+230), the current favorites, but the likes of Sentinels (+400), eUnited (+800), FaZe (+900) and Gamers First (+1000) are also hoping to spring a surprise.
Sixteen of the best Halo esports sides will be battling it out in this major and will have to go through various phases to make certain that the best team leaves as the winner. There’s going to be an open bracket, a group stage and a championship bracket. The competition also serves as a precursor to the world championships in October, with the top 12 teams from the championship bracket making it to the world championships.

Favorites To Win In The HCS Orlando Title Odds
OpTic Gaming (+125)
OpTic Gaming has been phenomenal this season, which is why it’s no surprise that they lead the Halo Championship Series Orlando outright odds table. They recently won the North American Super Tournament as well, so they’re heading into this competition on fire.
They have been in and around the top three for the best part of five years now and head into most Halo tournaments as favorites. They are the safest bet on offer. It helps that they destroyed their closest competitors on the odds table, Cloud9, by a score of 4-0 recently. A team will have to play out of their skin to get one over them in the Halo Championship Series Orlando.
Cloud9’s odds have dropped because of the 4-0 loss to OpTic last month in the North American Super Tournament, but that was just a terrible day in the office for them. They’re a side that is capable of playing far better, which is why they still have favorable odds in the Halo Championship Series Orlando outright odds table.
The team lost some of its star power after Renegade moved to FaZe Clan in the summer, but they still retain a strong roster that could beat anyone on its day.
Value Picks To Win In The HCS Orlando Outright Odds
With Lethul on your squad, you’ve always got a chance. Sentinels also won their first Halo Infinite Major this year when they beat Cloud9 in HCS Kansas City. No one was expecting it at the time, but they showed why experience matters. At the time, they also got the better of odds table leader OpTic Gaming. There’s no reason to believe they can’t do it again.
This is a side that knows what it takes to be world champions, having done it all back in 2016-17. They have the know-how – and unlike some of the other challengers, they don’t fear the likes of Cloud9 and OpTic Gaming. They’ve been in the game too long for that.
Betting Strategy For Winners Of The Halo Championship Series Orlando
There are so many great teams to choose from in the Halo Championship Series Orlando title odds. The likes of eUnited and FaZe haven’t even gotten a mention. FaZe, a dominant force in most other esports, has taken talent from so many of the other big teams to create their own superstar rosters and will be itching to show that they’re a threat in the Halo Championship Series Orlando. This competition could well be the making of them.
However, it’s a little too early for them and the odds of winning the Orlando Major for most of the other sides are minimal as things stand. Cloud9 has had a few too many hiccups on the big stage this year, which is why it’s difficult to see them suddenly turning that around. If bettors want to live on the edge a little, Sentinels are an excellent shout.
That said, it’s hard to see past OpTic Gaming. The best version of OpTic Gaming will be too strong for every other side in the competition.
